During the lessons, students are introduced to the study of the human figure, its movements and positions, and they are encouraged to develop a personal graphic style.

Much attention is devoted to the design of menswear and ladies' clothing in different styles and fashion trends, and to the study of color techniques, including a variety of drawing and coloring methods.

The "elements of collection" lessons provide an introduction to the profession of fashion designer: each student, under the guidance of a fashion designer, is expected to come up with original ideas for fashion collections.
